The Group for Women stands with our community in disapproval to the overt racism and inherent /implicit bias present in our society.
The discrimination carries over into the health care setting and continues to impact underrepresented minorities who continue to experience a higher mortality rate.
Racism and bias in any setting is unacceptable. We are listening, we are learning and we are committed to take meaningful action.
To start, we are donating to the Virginia African American Cultural Center, Inc. to support their mission to educate, inform and celebrate the culture, history and accomplishments of African Americans as well as to offer opportunities for a safe and healing environment for our community.
We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
